The Foundation

In 1978, Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation was formally established as a separate charitable 501(c)(3) organization dedicated solely to advancing the mission of Children’s Hospital Colorado.

The Foundation has three purposes:

  • Educating and engaging the community on the hospital’s behalf
  • Fundraising for the hospital
  • Investing funds raised on behalf of the hospital

The foundation staff believes deeply that all children should have the opportunity for a bright and healthy future. Comprised of more than 50 fundraising professionals, the foundation is committed to engaging with the community to facilitate philanthropic support for the children and families served at Children’s Colorado.

Support for the hospital can be seen in a variety of ways as community leaders contribute to our mission by giving outright gifts, gifts in kind, volunteering their time and energy at a wide variety of fundraising events, corporate partnerships, gifts honoring loved ones, planned giving, and foundation grants.

A new play by Mateo  Moreno (Happily After Tonight, Within Our Walls)

Original Music by Daniel A Weiss (Dedalus Lounge, Anthony Rapp’s Without You)

Directed by Matt Gray (Producing Director at “American Opera Projects”)

Part of the 2014 NY International Fringe Festival

Starring Mateo Moreno (Vaclav Havel’s Hunt For a Pig), Michaela Alyse Tomcho (Workshop production of Wonderland), Tracy McDowell* (current star of Broadway’s Motown, final Broadway cast of RENT), Kristen Adele* (Orange is the New Black), Derek Jorden (Recreation), & honorary Tony Award Winner Sophia Gennusa* (Matilda The Musical on Broadway).

*= Actors appearing courtesy of Actors Equity Association.

Our play, Bohemian Valentine, is a passion project of ours that we have been working on for two years now.  Set in New York City, our play follows Michael, a young man who’s recently lost the love of his life.  Over the past three years, he has been struggling from day to day, as he can no longer tell his memories from his reality.  Trying to find a way to cope, he decides to start photographing his memories he spent with his girlfriend with a Polaroid camera, planning to take the pictures with him when he leaves everything behind.  Bohemian Valentineis a darkly funny and frank look at love and loss, with an amazing, original score by Daniel A. Weiss (Assistant Conductor of the original Off and On Broadway productions of RENT, Musical Director of Anthony Rapp’s upcoming one man show Without You).

First, Boomerang Theatre produced a small staged reading of it in 2012 (Directed by Kent Burnham) and then Planet Connections Festivity selected it to be one of their 2013 staged readings, where it was nominated for Best Staged Reading, Best Actress: Tracy McDowell, and won Best Director: Kent Burnham.  And now, the full staged production has been selected to perform in the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival!  We are SO proud of the play and the cast is INCREDIBLE.  Now we need YOUR help to help us bring this play to the New York stage!

About The West Village Musical Theatre Festival:

The West Village Musical Theatre Festival (WVMTF) offers writers, composers, lyricists, actors, and directors the opportunity showcase original works in a professional setting.

We believe there is a little “Village” in all of us, so we  challenge every participant to show us something new, refined, daring and that belongs to the artist alone. This mission goes well beyond the stage, and permeates the lives of the community we wish to create through our art: a community of emerging professionals that invoke the spirit of one of the most creative areas in New York City.
